the house? is this a breakthrough we're looking for? >> there are a lot of questions there. there was a big flurry about that but now has died down. it does not look like it has -- like that one is the one that can pass. there was a big deal between president obama and speaker boehner. i'm told that is being revised. we will see. we have the drama as to when president obama -- whether president obama will agree to sign a short term -- whether it is by days -- agreement to raise the debt ceiling in case there is some deal to work out. there are incredible polls released detailing the mood of the country. they see their leaders grappling but not coming together on this big issue. you have the world still watching. of the market's still watching and you have the whole democracy thrown in. is allowing the bush tax cuts to expire raising taxes or not? >> the deadline is august 2nd. are we now close enough to that date that you think that on any given day, the market could break, there could be a herd mentality that causes major disruption in the market? ari we already at that risk point? >> it h
this big, grand compromise, the president and and congressional leaders need to negotiate to raise that limit. they're demanding 2 trillion in spending cuts be made to give the president the increase he wants and democrats demanding any deal to cut spending like that has to include an increase in tax revenue. the big question, going into tonight's meeting is whether a smaller deficit reduction deal is possible. both sides are saying it can be done. failure to do it would lead to economic meltdown. >> jon, thank you very much. joining me to discuss the road ahead is the white house chief of staff bill daley. thank you very much for joining us. you've heard what jon said. you've seen what speaker boehner has done last night. what's your reaction to the deal being pulled right now? >> it's very unfortunate the speaker made the comments he has. the president is committed to solving this deficit possible for the future of america. he's looking forward to the meeting to play out his case. he's saying, it is time now to make the tough decisions. in this town, generally they kick the can.

speaker boehner can round up enough votes to pass it and it may be too big for congress to deal with, with only a week left. >> and earlier tonight, i talked about these issues with politico. >> thanks so much for joining us. >> still no deal. >> no deal. >> where do we stand? >> both sides really can't agree on much of anything right now except for the fact that there needs to be some kind of deal at the end. otherwise the united states is going to default. >> it sounds like they're coming together a bit in terms of agreeing that they need to come up with a plan that does not increase government spending. >> right. >> which is new. >> right. and we're seeing john boehner come up with a plan that decreases spending by $1 trillion this year and then another couple trillion after in the years ahead, and then we're also seeing harry reid the, the senate democratic leader coming wup his own plan to decrease the spending. but there's still disagreement on what a final blueprint would look like. >> obama the president is getting just as muc
of all, we are divided because there are big differences of opinion here about the size of government and about the direction of tax policy. the president's remarks are unhelpful. they're not really related to the current deficit debate. you can do everything he asks for and it really wouldn't change the numbers very much. the question is getting people focused on long-term spending changes that the country must have. and i think part of the dysfunction is because congress really doesn't have the rules it needs to have this discussion in a civil way. but that can change. >> so making a real dent in the long-term deficit situation requires hard choices. will we be able to balance those choices even with this politicking going on throughout the process? is compromise impossible? >>>> no, it's not impossible at all. we've seen it in fiscalistory in the past 25 years, big compromise. but it does require to focus on what we can all agree on. pick whatever spending cuts the two sides agree on, and then have the longer term discussion in the context of t the 2012 election where the american
are kind of in suspended animation until speaker boehner acts on this bill today but i think one of the big problems you face is that once he does send -- get this through, if he does get it through, it's going to be very hard to get any of his republicans to vote for the real compromise in a day or two or three. >> reporter: well, that's exactly right. both of your points right. first of all there are no negotiations going on in that compromise right now because all the focus is getting this passed in the house. speaker boehner isn't exactly taking calls from democrats but trying to get his own republicans in line. once he does this, this is going to be very difficult for him to get -- to go any further by way of compromise. if there is a compromise it's going to take a lot of democrats to pass it in the house. >> a lot of democrat, that's exactly right. key market openings sunday night, the next big deadline to watch for, as well. >> that's right. >> the asian market. >> elizabeth, this is just so uncertain going into the final weekend. >> well, and certainly the public is starting to los

'r're not ready to vote f this, are you? >> from a big picture, i'm not ready to vote for this. let me tell you why -- excuse me, george, the bottom line here is, the people who got elected are not excited about being republicans or democrats, they are excited about results. and it is fair to say, we've achieved significant change in the way washington works by paying for the debt ceiling increase and not passing it on to the credit card. we've not achieved entitlement change, we've not reduced the size and scope of government. we're going in the wrong direction at a slower pace and for a lot of people that is not winning. >> you're an internationalist. we talked about all sorts of things like afghanistan. you saw the soldiers yesterday and i asked david plouffe, desperately asking their commander, admiral mullin, whether they will get paid. and he said i can't tell you. >> i can. i can tell them. here's what i would have said, not only are you going to get paid. admiral mullin said the number one national security issue facing this country is debt. and i wish we would have followed on with wha

. >> reporter: that big house vote on boehner's bill i i expected tomorrow. we still don't know if he's convinced enough tea partiers to get it passed. they think they have the votes, diane, but this is going to be very close. >> jon, thank you. i want to bring someonene in wh has been making phone calls all day, "gma" anchor george stephanopoulos. is a breakthrough afoot, george? >> reporter: most democrats and republicans believe boehner is going to win this vote, it would be a big win for him. but the only thing it guarantees is anonoer round of negotiations, because the democratic majority in the senate won't pass this bill and the president won't sign it. >> what's next? >> reporter: a lot of talk. assuming this passes, there will be another round of negotiations. no certainty yet if this will happen at the white house or just among leaders on capitol hill. but it comes down to one big question. who is going to blink? will the president accept another vote on the debt limit before the next election or will the republicans accept another way to guarantee the cut? and both sides ar

increase. >> that's the big deal. you have harry reid coming up with a plan for democrats. that he says includes $2.7 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years and gives the president the debt ceiling increase that takes him all of the way to 2013. republicans are already saying that those -- his plan includes gimmicks and phantom cuts. so the republicans are coming up with their plan, which would include about $1 trillion in cuts now. it would require the president to come back to congress next year to ask for another debt ceiling increase. >> that's the huge sticking point for the white house. the president has made it clear time and time again that he won't sign a short-term increase. he squashed it at the meeting last night. >> republicans leaders have said that as well. they didn't want any short-term solution to this problem. they changed their tune on this. white house said that speaker boehner needs to stand up and pursue one of the paths that's out there. lot of those same gimmicks in savings from future wars are in the republican budget, the paul ryan budget. george? >

john boehner has called off talks with president obama. we go to the white house. >> a big deficit reduction package. i thought it would be useful for me to give you some insight into where we were and why, i think that we should have moved forward with a big deal. essentially, what we had offered speaker boehner was over $1 trillion in cuts to discretionary spending, both domestic and defense. we then offered an additional $650 billion in cuts to entitlement programs. medicare medicaid, social security. we believe that it is possible to shape those in a way that preserves the integrity of the system, makes them available for the next generation, and does not affect beneficiaries in an adverse way. in addition, what we saw it was revenues that were actually less than what they signed off on with the gang of six. the bipartisan group and the republicans in leadership in the senate, what they called for. it was effectively $2 trillion above the republican baseline. what we said was, give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues which could be accomplished without hiking taxes, but co
